The Fargo season two teaser appeals to fans of birds, implied violence

It’s been a year since Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley began dropping hints about the show’s second season by announcing that this year, Fargo will take place in 1979. And while there’s been a glut of casting announcements—including the fact that cult hero Bruce Campbell will be sucking down jellybeans as Ronald Reagan—since then, the first teaser trailer for the show’s new season keeps information scant. It does do an admirable job of extending Fargo’s tone, which is equal parts desolate and explosive. Or maybe the reference is more literal. Maybe this bird pecking on a tree in the midst of a gun battle actually hints at the show’s new focus: the violent wars between rival birdwatching gangs. We’ll find out come September.
